Raising energy is an essential part of stimulating, developing, and
powering the higher functions of the energy body, including
out-of-body projection. This makes use of many of the skills you
have learned so far in this book.
Feel energy-raising actions as if you were drawing a large sponge up
through each pair of limbs, as if you were sponging water up through
them. Stay as physically relaxed as you can while doing these
exercises, but don't worry if you tense up a little or tend to
twitch a bit at times. A little physical tension will not interfere
with this type of energy raising. In time you'll learn how to do
this while standing, walking, and even running.
With all the coming energy-raising exercises, if you cannot easily
split awareness and work on two limbs at the same time, work on one
limb at a time. It is much more important to be able to raise energy
through one limb than to be able to split awareness. The following
techniques, though, will have to be modified to suit single-limb
Do not worry if one leg or arm does not appear to respond well.
Usually one side of the body is more active and energetically
responsive, and hence easier to draw energy through. Keep trying
with the unresponsive side, and continue trying to use arms and legs
in pairs while doing these exercises. If one leg or arm is all you
can feel, draw energy through it but do not neglect its weaker
partner. The weaker side always requires more development. A little
extra time should be set aside for this during each training
Regular stimulation slowly revitalizes
inactive areas as energy pathways widen and are redefined.
Leg Energy Raising
Leg energy raising to
There are two ways to raise energy into
your body: with awareness alone or with awareness aided by
The basic techniques for raising energy
with awareness alone are generally used as part of a full-body
circuit, or for raising energy to primary centers. They are also
very useful when it is impractical to do anything more elaborate.
For example, try this if you are tired and just want to raise some
quick energy before falling asleep.
Prestimulate feet, using the techniques learned in the previous
chapter. First brush across all toes with a single action, then use
the whole-foot sponging action, one at a time or both together.
Continue with this until you feel some activity.
Split awareness (optional) by reaching down and grabbing the energy
in both feet with your awareness hands and pulling it upward with a
deep sponging action. Sponge it up through the whole of both legs to
hips, as if sponging water up through them. This action forces
energy to flow into feet and up through legs.
Take energy up through your thighs and over the front of your hips,
skipping the groin area, letting it flow directly into your
sub-navel storage center from each side. The sub-navel is midway
between your bellybutton and pubic line and about two inches inside
your body. This action does not have to be precise; the general
feeling of raising and pushing energy into this area is all that is
Develop a rhythmic drawing action, sweeping and sponging energy
upward through your legs and into the storage center. Take two to
three seconds over each upward sweep, or whatever feels most
natural. At the end of each upward sweep, flick awareness back to
your feet, ready to start over. If awareness does not split easily,
use one leg at a time, alternating between them with each upward
When you get a good flow of energy moving into your sub-navel, you
may feel a fluttering, bubbling sensation similar to stomach wind.
This is a very good sign, indicating energy is successfully being
raised, converted, and stored. The exact site of this sensation
varies slightly from person to person, but is usually within an inch
or two of the center.
Arm Energy Raising
Energy can be raised through arms as well as legs. The arms are
normally only used as part of a full-body circuit or for stimulating
primary centers, but can also be used on their own.
If you are sitting in a chair, either hang your hands by your sides
or rest them palm upward in your lap. If you are lying down, hold
your hands above the bed with elbows resting on the surface of the
bed. Alternatively, spread your arms wide and rest them on the bed.
Any position will do for this purpose and comfort is important. If
you cannot split awareness easily, alternate arms and raise energy
through them one at a time.
Prestimulate both hands, then center awareness firmly in hands.
Split awareness (optional) and draw energy through both hands,
through the whole of both arms to the shoulders, and on up through
to the back of the neck. This is where it will join with the energy
stream being raised through the spine, as part of a full-body
energy-raising circuit (see below).
If this technique is being used on its own, take energy through the
shoulders, down over the chest and stomach and directly into the
sub-navel storage center.
Use two- to three-second energy sweeps, flicking awareness back to
hands at the end of each arm sweep, ready to start on the next.
This technique can be combined with breathing, by raising energy
through the arms during the IN breath, and flicking awareness back
to hands during the OUT breath, ready for the next IN breath.
Arm energy raising to
sub-navel center, plus alternative method taking energy over head
Breathing creates a natural motion within body awareness, that of
something flowing in and out of the body. This has a natural upward
and downward, inward and outward motion to it. This motion is very
useful when combined with awareness energy-raising techniques.
Breathing also provides energy-raising
actions with a natural rhythm.
Arms and Legs
The first step is to loosen up and prestimulate the energy
structures in the feet, legs, hands, and arms. Repeat the above
two sections on basic arm and leg energy raising as needed,
until you feel some energy-movement sensations.
If you feel nothing, continue with
the following exercises anyway, as energy will still be drawn
into and through your body even if you cannot feel anything.
Two-Part Storage Circuit
First, here is a simple technique to take arm and leg energy
directly into the sub-navel storage center. This technique soon
develops a natural rhythm that makes it very easy to do, and
soon becomes almost automatic. Feel free to vary the positions
of your arms and legs to whatever feels most natural.
This circuit can be done while
sitting, lying down, standing, or even walking, but is best
learned while lying down with arms spread wide or above your
Prestimulate as needed, then
center awareness firmly in both feet.
During the IN breath, raise
energy up legs and flow it into the sub-navel.
Continue flowing energy into
the sub-navel until IN breath is finished.
When IN breath finishes,
flick awareness instantly into both hands.
As OUT breath starts, draw
energy through the arms, down the chest, and into the
Continue flowing energy into
the sub-navel until the OUT breath is finished.
At the end of the OUT
breath, flick awareness back to feet again.
Repeat steps 2 through 7
continuously, settling into a natural rhythm.
If awareness cannot be
split, alternate arms and legs, using one limb at a
IN and OUT can be reversed
Full-Body Storage Circuit
The full-body circuit combines awareness energy raising with
breathing, as with the above technique, but covers the whole
body with one continual flow of energy, rather than two separate
flows. This stimulates the majority of energy conduits,
pathways, and energy centers in the body, including the primary
A full-body circuit should be done, if possible, for ten to
fifteen minutes per day to gain significant developmental
benefits from it. This can also be split into many smaller
sessions, and even a minute per session is valuable. Once
learned, this technique can be used to make better use of free
waiting and traveling time. There is no limit to the length of
time this can or should be practiced, the more often the better.
If this technique is done for just a few minutes before falling
asleep, the extra energy raised increases the vividness of
dreams and lucid dreams. This empowers all subtle and dream
bodies, thus making conscious-exit projection easier to do and
The energy-raising action used in the full-body circuit can be
fairly wide; it does not have to be narrowed to just the spine.
Allow it to spread out as energy is raised up through your back
and down over your front, narrowing it just before it flows into
Use slow, deep, natural breathing. Prestimulate feet and hands
and bounce awareness through your whole body a few times before
beginning the full-body circuit. The full-body circuit can be
done in any position, but is best learned while lying on your
back with arms resting comfortably at sides.
During the downward sweep over the head, the energy is best
taken into the mouth and down the throat, and then out onto the
upper chest as it continues moving down toward the sub-navel.
Otherwise the throat area will be skipped as awareness passes
over the face and chin, and it contains important centers that
should be stimulated. It helps if the tongue is rolled back and
held gently against the roof of the mouth during the full-body
Taking energy into the mouth can be omitted entirely if this is
found to be too difficult or too distracting. In this case,
simply take the energy down over the face and chest, skipping
the mouth entirely. The mouth part of the full-body circuit
should not be forgotten.
Add it at a later time when you are
more comfortable with it.
Prestimulate as needed,
then center awareness firmly in both feet.
During the IN breath, raise
energy up the legs and through the back.
Raise energy through arms as
awareness passes where hands are resting (optional).
Continue raising energy up
the neck to top of the head.
Hold awareness in the top of
your head and accumulate it there until the IN breath is
As the OUT breath starts,
sweep energy over your face, into your mouth, throat,
and chest to the sub-navel.
Continue flowing energy into
the sub-navel until you complete the OUT breath.
At the end of the OUT
breath, flick awareness back to the feet, ready for the
next IN breath.
Repeat steps 2 through 8
while settling into a natural rhythm.
If you cannot split
awareness, alternate and use one limb at a time.
IN and OUT can be reversed
Joining Arms into Full-Body
Once you are comfortable with the above circuit, join your
arms into the energy flow. This increases overall energy flow as
well as drawing in different types of energies through your
During the above full-body circuit, as your upward-moving
awareness passes your hands, draw energy through the hands and
up arms as well. Raise arm energy in line with the rest of your
energy from this point onward, in one fluid upward sweep. Feel
your arm energy joining into the spinal energy flowing through
the back of your neck.
Smoothly continue this awareness
action up into the crown center. Continue with the full-body
circuit as given above. The only change is the addition of hand
and arm energy into the flow with each upward sweep on the IN
breath. Everything else stays the same.
Using the arms with the full-body circuit should be considered
optional. It can be omitted if you have difficulty with it, or
find that this addition makes it too complicated. It is more
important to have some kind of a full-body energy circuit that
you can use than to slavishly follow every step of these
techniques. Just do the best you can. None of the awareness
actions used with these energy-raising techniques needs to be
precise. A roughly approximate feeling of moving energy from one
place to another in your body is quite good enough. You'll get
better with practice.
If you cannot easily split awareness, raise energy up alternate
sides of the body, taking energy up one leg and arm to crown,
then continuing as normal.
With each new IN breath, change the
side being used, first left then right, etc.
Energy Flow and Effort
As I have mentioned, a deeply relaxed physical state usually is not
required for learning the NEW system. Effort can thus be put into
the energy-raising actions without breaking any delicate mental
The amount of energy that can be raised
is greatly affected by the application of will. This is particularly
useful when there are low background energy conditions, or for times
when a greater energy flow is needed, e.g., for clearing stubborn,
unresponsive, and blocked areas with brute awareness force.
Apart from clearing blockages, for normal development I strongly
recommend that only a normal level of effort be used. This is not
only easier but is far more natural. It will encourage more even and
robust development of the energy body as a whole. Too great an
effort can cause too rapid expansion and growth in certain areas,
which can make developing energetic structures far too delicate to
be of much practical use.
Forced development through excessive
effort grows large but weak, temporary, and unstable energetic
pathways. These will retract back to their original narrowed state
very quickly, maybe even smaller than before, if not nurtured gently
Using too strong energy-raising efforts to unblock damaged or
depleted structures within the energy body can cause continuing
energy demands and high energy usage far in excess of the amount of
energy raised. This can result in temporary physical exhaustion.
Often, more energy is used to repair blockages than is actually
being raised and stored, thus causing a temporary energy deficit.
This can also cause noticeable energy-movement sensations that
continue for some time after energy-raising actions have been
This is quite normal and often
I would like to make one thing very clear. Strong energy-movement
sensations are primarily caused by resistance within the energy body - natural resistance to an increased flow of energy through blocked
or narrowed energy centers and circuitry.
Many people, during the early stages of
development, will feel some very strong energy-movement sensations
indeed. These sensations fluctuate, gradually reducing in severity
as the energy body develops to handle increased energy flow.
The energy, when it responds in the early stages, will most commonly
cause a surging, bubbling, rushing-water sensation. This is
especially strong and noticeable in the shins and thighs. These can
be quite intense and even breathtaking at times. You may also feel
strong, bone-deep tingling sensations that appear to come from deep
inside the marrow of your bones. Many of my volunteers have reported
they have fallen off their chairs and been unable to stand for a
while, because surging energy-movement sensations in their legs have
been so strong.
Several peculiar energy-movement sensations, often very strong, can
be caused by the NEW system. It is fairly normal, while stimulating
the feet, legs, hands, and arms, to feel extremely strong buzzing
and tingling sensations within them. These sensations will fade
slowly with regular use and development, reducing to a warm and
comfortable, gently tingling, energy flow.
Levels of sensation can also be affected
by other factors, such as the condition of the physical body and the
strength and availability of free energy, which fluctuates daily and
varies from one place to another.
Tingling, tickling, buzzing,
and vibrating in the soles of feet and toes
Rushing-water sensation up
legs and arms

Tingling energetic body-rush
feelings up arms, legs, and spine
Muscular spasming and
Cobweblike tickling, like
ants crawling all over you
Localized stinging and
Aching, cold or hot spots,
especially in soles and palms
Keep in mind that heavy
energy-movement sensations always reduce as the energy body
develops. Masters of energy raising, with highly developed
energy bodies, feel only a gentle, tingling warmth as massive
amounts of energy are drawn into their bodies. Look upon the
lessening of energy-movement sensations as signs of real
progress in energy-body development.
The NEW system, especially in the early stages, will occasionally
cause temporary swellings, lumps, rashes, and even small watery
blisters. In my opinion, this is caused by narrowed energy pathways
having far greater than normal amounts of energy forced though them.
This seems to overload some of the
nerves and nerve endings in the physical body, temporarily affecting
surrounding soft tissue and skin and causing these side effects.
If you get any of these symptoms, treat them as you would any normal
swelling, rash, or blister. Consult your medical doctor if they
worry you. Energy rashes and blisters usually sting and itch quite
noticeably when energy is drawn through them. These will heal very
quickly if you continue regular development exercises, usually
within a day or two, and will often disappear completely overnight.
If your energy body does not respond at all, even after weeks of
regular effort, I advise you to have a mil medical checkup by a
qualified medical doctor. Energy blockages of this magnitude are not
a good health indicator. This can indicate early disease conditions
that have not yet become symptomatic.
As early diagnosis of most medical
conditions is paramount to their successful treatment, this can be
an extremely valuable side benefit of energy work.
After repeating any energy-raising action several times, you
will find it develops a tendency to continue on its own accord.
Awareness actions thus often continue after you have stopped
consciously doing them. I call this effect awareness momentum.
It seems to be caused by a kind of
energy-body memory taking over, which shows just how easily
these techniques can be learned.
Continuing Energetic Demands
After an energy blockage has been cleared, the energy body
will often continue flowing energy through newly cleared areas.
Energy-movement sensations may thus continue to be experienced
for some time after stimulation actions have ceased.
Energy blockages will also often clear themselves spontaneously,
in response to earlier energetic development exercises. This can
happen at any time of the day or night, which can cause
energy-movement sensations to begin spontaneously and for no
Energy Center Spin
Primary energy centers are nonphysical vortexes of energy
that look (to clairvoyant sight), like spinning wheels of
multicolored light. Although secondary centers cannot so easily
be observed, it is logical to suggest they may have similar
The natural direction in which a
center is spinning can often be felt with the stirring awareness
action. If you feel resistance while stirring an energy center,
try reversing the direction of that action.
If the new direction feels easier
and more natural, or has a more positive effect, there is a good
chance that that center works better being stimulated in that
Etheric wrap is a versatile and useful technique for
clearing blockages and restoring damaged parts of the energy
body. Areas that are unresponsive, tingle noticeably, feel
heavy, or sting, or buzz, or bum, or act in any way different
from the rest of your body, usually indicate some kind of
blockage, depletion, or damage.
These areas need more attention to
repair and restore them. When you draw or bounce awareness
through your body, you may also come upon areas that feel
heavier or lighter or fuzzier or thicker, or that provide more
or less resistance to awareness actions. These sensations
indicate those areas need extra work to clear them.
Use a wide-wrapping action over the damaged area. Imagine you
have an endless white bandage of pure energy flowing from your
awareness hands. Feel this bandage of energy flowing directly
into the damaged area as you wrap it. Feel the substance of your
energy flowing with this bandage. This action is to be varied to
suit the size and position of the area being worked on.
Etheric wrap is useful for getting inactive areas working. For
example, if you want to etheric wrap a leg: Awareness-target
your foot and begin wrapping from the toes up, as if you were
carefully wrapping an overlapping energy bandage around it. Feel
your energy flowing into that area, into the foot, through your
awareness hands. Continue wrapping up over the foot, over the
ankle, and on up the leg, all the way to the hip. Take your time
over this and be careful to overlap the wrapping action all the
way. Repeat this as many times as required, as this exercise
cannot be overdone.
Note that some energy blockages will not show up for some time.
Many will only become apparent after energetic development work
has become a regular practice, as the energy body becomes more
energy sensitive and energy demands increase.
Daily Energy-Raising Time
There is no limit as to how much energy raising can or should be
done, as long as this is taken only into the sub-navel storage
The more often energy is raised, the
more energy will be stored and the more energy will be available for
physical, bioenergetic, and pure-energetic purposes. It is far more
beneficial for long-term energetic development to raise energy
gently and slowly and for longer periods of time, than it is to
raise large amounts of energy in short bursts only.
Rushing development creates fragile
energetic structures that have little practical use, as they tend to
break down when put under pressure.
